Confirmation Preparation for 9th & 10th graders

Teens receive the sacrament of Confirmation in the spring of 10th grade. During 9th & 10th grade they participate in faith formation sessions, retreats and service in preparation for Confirmation. 

Like Baptism which it completes, Confirmation is given only once, for it too imprints on the soul an indelible spiritual mark, the “character,” which is the sign that Jesus Christ has marked a Christian with the seal of His Spirit by clothing them with power from on high so that they may be his witnesses.

At Notre Dame, teens receive the sacrament of Confirmation during their sophomore year, after two years of preparation. Adults wishing to be confirmed will find more information under Adult Faith Formation, the Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA) program.
